26 sixth-formers from Rushcliffe School are going into a care home in Hilton Crescent and making friends with elderly residents.

Some of the residents are living with dementia so the 16 to 17 year-olds have been trained to deal with the behaviours this might cause – and with being forgotten from one visit to the next. But the teenagers are continuing to go in because "we want the elderly to be less lonely and to show them that there is good in young people".

Liam Brown and Archie Symes have continued their record breaking progression that they set at the start of the year, with Liam gaining promotion to Division 1 C1 (1 year ahead of target) and Archie gaining promotion to Division 1 K1 (again 1 year ahead of target)
